I Two sample and one sample ttests (also C.I.s) You must recognize that the study is a paired design. Do the hypothesis steps like a 2independent sample ttest (steps 14 and step 10). Calculate the differences D = Y 1 Y 2 . Do the t calculations for the differences like a 1sample ttest (steps 59). Directionality works as before. It is the observed differences that we wish to analyze. n is the number of pairs in the sample. Example: Have 12 fruit flies from 6 different lines (2 of each) grown in vials at two different temperatures. After a specified time for development, count the number of bristles on each fly. We think that bristle number has approximately a normal distribution, but flies from the same line should have similar bristle numbers. Chapter9.tex; Last Modified: November 4, 2008 (W. Sharabati) STAT503 Spring 2007 Lecture Notes: Chapter 9 2 So we will look at the difference in bristle number between two flies of the same line. Block = line Treatment = temperature Have 12 observations but they occur in 6 pairs so n = 6.

Let 1 and 2 be the mean bristle number for flies grown at the colder and warmer temperatures, respectively H : 1 = 2 ; the mean bristle number is the same for both temperatures H A : 1 6 = 2 ; the mean bristle number is different at the two temperatures Use a nondirectional paired sample ttest....
